Most enjoyed the Golden Temple at Amritsar, Cycling down the Sutlej valley a superb gorge and the challenging ride up to the Jalori Pass - quite tough but with a great sense of achievement. Leader and support crew were always attentive, cheerful and inspired confidence. They added to the experience without being intrusive. The mechanic did sterling work and there was no issue with changing e.g. brake blocks or cables if we were unhappy. Thoroughly enjoyed the challenge! My third time to India and I think the best. For a fit, regular cyclist the cycling was OK. Not easy, but do-able. Hoped it would be good and it was.
